Technology is advancing faster than most of us can comprehend, and it will have a big impact on our lives and livelihoods - presenting huge opportunities and potentially just as many risks.

The World Economic Forum and the government of Japan brought together leaders from government, academia, business and civil society from 125 countries for a Global Technology Governance Summit to look at the big challenges posed by these big advances.

In this episode of Radio Davos, Ina Fried, Chief Technology Correspondent at Axios, joined podcast host Robin Pomeroy for a look at some of the best moments from GTGS21.
